Hello. In QM we can determine the probability of any event ocurring given the wavefunction. Once we actually take a measurement the particle 'picks' a state to be found in.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so my question is how do we know a priori that the particle is in two or more states at the same timebeforewe make a measurement

thank you
